Yes, just snap it in, launch cardboard vr app, and tilt your phone, it should auto detect
if your headset comes with magnetic switch, then use it to navigate, otherwise just bring a magnet close to your head to navigate

I got google cardboard. It works flawlessly. You may get it from Amazon at about Rs200.

See for a clear VR video you need more than 500ppi resolution screen. Else due to convex lens in the VR set, you will see the pixels. SO for that awesome quality you need to buy high end phones like LG G5, Galaxy S7 etc. Now as this one has Full HD, so you get watchable images in this screen. Far better than HD screen.

Anyway, do not waste much money on VR as you will get bored. Further ANTVR does not have that magnet I suppose which you will need for controlling the device while it is attached to the VR set. Anyway, all types of VR will work with this phone. Get card-boared, and if you feel a VR is necessary, buy a better one. Watching clash of clans in 360, beautiful Japanese girls dancing all around you and watching 360 porn are some of the wonderful things you can do with VR. Also the most awesome feature of this phone is the Fast charging. Just 20 mins charging gives me more than 60% charge. and this phone does not gets hot. Also its design is much better than Xaiomi Redmi. After and update, now battery lasts more than a day. Initially I was getting disappointing battery performance. Now its awesome!!. Camera clicls very sharp picture. Also the front camera is wide angle. And the Infrared remote. Now I don't have to search for the AC remote at office or TV remote at home. My phone easily servers the purpose.

I was planning for a iPhone but now I feel completely satisfied with this phone. I got it for Rs 7600 exchanging my old Samsung which cost RS 24 k and didn't last even 2 years.

Get VR Box 2, its the cheapest "plastic" VR, much more comfortable than cardboard ones and the lenses are of good quality..
You can get it for as low as Rs 400

magnetometer is only used to trigger button events, as far as i know.. If you have gyroscope, you can probably enjoy normal VR, but wont be able to trigger any action..
Try getting the bluetooth remote thingie, that can solve the problem

Dont expect to play VR games that run in PC on a smartphone, they are made for Oculus Rift or HTC Vive only, you could emulate it via riftcat on your smartphone but the experience is terrible and riftcat is a paid application..

ok, so you mean smartphone with gyroscope plus bluetooth remote controller will allow me to play VR games via apps like riftcat?

theoretically yes, but i cannot confirm if magnetometer is not needed for actual vr head tracking.. just research a bit before confirming, AFAIK, moto g 4 plus doesnt have magnetometer as well, you could search some channels on youtube if that phone is VR compatible, that should answer the question

a USB OTG to powered USB Hub should theoretically work, but it might distort/And Or Damage the sound DAC, or it may not even work

[MENTION=105759]bubusam13[/MENTION]>> finally i got the Le2 during the mega 919 sale on 19/09 from flipkart at 10.8k, however they did not provide the CDLA earphones..i checked them at lemall and they cost around 2k, my question is- is that really worth? please share your honest opinion on those earphones.

No... They gave you the converter right. I use it with my Sony xb30ex earphones. I have small ears. So I have a doubt will the CDLA headphones even fit in my ears.

Anyway I colleague got Le2 for Rs 6820 after exchanging his Nokia Lumia 535. I say on eBay Lumia 535 cost Rs 4499 and on Flipkart exchange he got Rs 4400 rebate :p Lucky guy
Please share your feedback about the phone. Also go to the Battery option in settings and turn ON fast charging. It charges your phone from 0 to 60% in half n hour. Also go to Wifi> advanced and turn off WiFi scanning when in sleep. It will give you about 3 hr more battery backup.
